Even if on hiatus, a great story of this site, which deserves more recognition.
It takes place in the setting of RoyalRoad but with the dropping of quality in the recents volumes of LMS, it really make me wonder if this FF is not actually even better than the original. Quietus over Weed ? In terms of interest in the character of the MC, certainly.
Hell, even the setting of the game is less broken than the original !
The quality of the devolpment of the background is without a doubt way better than most of the stories using RR.
All of this in a very fluid style and with a nearly flawless grammar, this is definitely a recommendable read despite the fact that at this point we don't know if the author will one day update.
Well, 56 chapters of enjoyment : even if we never see the end of the road, the path traveled alone is worth it (not that new chapters wouldn't be welcomed, quite the contrary actually).
The fact that this great piece of work may remain unfinished makes me sad…Very very sad
Edit: I come back after a long time and what do I see??? An Update!!! Woohoo~
This is a old royal road classic that people probably don’t know. It is old enough that it still has AnmesicCat as the author ( who it is not). i had read this when i had assumed there were no updates,i had forgot. now with a claim to weekly chapters, there is hope. It is about an antisocial rich kid named Mortimer who explores realm of Royal road as a way of following his love interest. And he then just plays to explore the life. With AI racism, and little to no player interaction. It is very entertaining read
It was an alright read. I went in expecting alot more than the novel actually gave based on all the other positive reviews, but if viewed in the context of novels like what this fanfiction is based on, it's better than 90% of the avaliable (often translated) works out there.
I don't like giving a less than stellar review because I don't want to discurage an author, but there was so much setup and interesting side characters that we could have learned more about, but it seemed like the author got tired of the slice of life style writing that composed the story and suddenly decided to end the novel... (I don't want to spoil; anything, but the ending is basically a series of timeskips in response to an event that came out of nowhere, then it ends.)
Mortimers character is handled quite well, but, partially due to his lack of social skills, we never really interact with anyone else other than on a surface level. The story is fine, but it's mostly slice of life in VR as the main character does everything except the goal he entered the game for.
Overall, if you want a (relatively) quick story to pass the time, The Necromancer is a fine choice if you enjoy works in the VRMMO genre.
So far this is the best fan fiction on this site, absolutely amazing, please write more I have to know what happens!!! The story line is well thought out and grammatically correct, along with how great the interactions are between the characters both in gane and out makes you not just interested in only one part of the sorry but all of it.
I really like this story.
i had not expected that it would be this good.
I really hope the writer will continue to update the story.
it has so much potential, I hope you won’t just drop it.
Keep up the good work, please.
It is not your typical stuck in another world or characther becomes op.
More like a relatively neautral pyshcopath with alot of money living how he wants.
Its different and absorbing at the same time.
This is an amazing story with the potential to be top ten material, if not top three. In a short list of what I like about it:
Style, as some have said before, the format of this story is changing sometimes, and there is a strech of chapters with no space between paragraphs.
Story: I have tried to read LMS, and I only got through the first three volumes before it got too cheesy for me. this story is very good, perhaps better than LMS.
Grammar: I have yet to see a single letter or punctuation mark out of place.
Character: the characters are all awesome, and feel lifelike.
Edit: 1 year anniversery of the completion of this story, and it remainsone of my favorites. Good going, Halosty!
Read the entire thing over night, fell asleep at work the next day but it was totally worth it. This is a work of art, and turns from a simple redux of things that have been done before into its own gem, polished to perfection. The main character walks a fine line between good and evil while the game actually has meaning for him and affects his life in a very real way. Would rate this higher if i could!!!
